Frequently asked questions

What is the best hotel in Hofn?

The best hotel in Hofn is Hali Country Hotel, with a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 from 515 visitors. With its location south of Vatnajokull glacier, it's a true family-run country hotel based on a farm. With beautiful views of the largest glacier in Europe in one direction and ocean views in the other, it's certainly a unique place to stay. There's a lovely restaurant located on site which serves breakfast and dinner. You can also learn about Iceland's early 20th-century history at the Thorbergur Cultural Heritage Center, dedicated to one of Iceland's greatest novelists who was born on the farm.

What part of Hofn should I stay in?

The best area of Hofn to stay in is by the harbor, from which the town draws its name, as the Icelandic word for harbor is höfn. There you can find various restaurants and cafés as well as conveniences such as a supermarket and a gas station. From the harbor, there is a short walk to Osland, a nature trail at the end of the peninsula with a memorial to fishermen that lost their lives at sea.

How do I get to Hofn?

The easiest way to get to the east of Iceland is to travel by rental car, which you can pick up immediately after landing at Keflavik International Airport. The journey will take you about 6 hours, but we recommend stopping along the way for some sightseeing.

Many visitors choose the area near Hofn or around Skaftafell if they are planning to go to the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon and Diamond Beach the next day. It's about 50 miles (80 kilometers) to Jokulsarlon from Hofn, therefore staying at a hotel in Hofn is ideal.

When should I book accommodation in Hofn to get the best price?

You can expect the best prices in winter, from October to April. However, to get a good deal, you should try to book accommodation a few months in advance.
